Today I spent 6 hours revising my new book, When Will Papa Get Home?, using Hemingway, an app I recently bought. I originally wrote the story by hand then put it on the computer. I put it aside for 20+ years and decided it was time to publish it, but I needed to beef it up. It was only about 5000 words.
My first book was a poetry book with a couple stories. This book is a historical fiction book, so the genre is completely different.
I have had a blast fleshing it out with research I have done on the Internet and with friends at home. It is now about 12,000 words and I am still adding to it.
My goal is to have it ready to publish by November. I need to have it edited after I finish revising.
Last week my brother and I visited the homestead where the story is set. I took several pictures and will be sharing them with you. One of the pictures will be the cover. I hadn’t been there in years and had forgotten much of the surrounding area around the homestead house.
Stay tuned for the pictures.
